On my last question I asked about a creaking/tick I was getting when I was stand pedaling on a climb.
I took it to my LBS today and they said they had stripped all the crank and BB and re-greased it all and all is well.
When I took it out that evening it clearly wasn't and was probably worse so obviously I took it back there today.
They then told me that really the whole gear system is designed so that I don't need to stand pedal uphill. My response was don't talk to me like a 5 year old and explained that I like the challenge of sprinting uphill. Apparently according to the man who served me, theres not a lot I can do to prevent this noise when I'm stand pedaling? My other bikes don't do it, but apparently a Trek 6300 does much to my confusion?
Can someone please tell me if this is normal? Or am I getting conned?
He basically tried to make me feel a bit stupid as I'm still new to this and then decided that trying to sell me a Shimano Hollowtech 2 chainset including BB which would help strengthen the bottom of the bike and prevent the noise?
I'm a bit confused now to be honest and would like some unbiased expert advice from you guys.
